"companions in learning and searching for truth."

Oakwood Mission 

Oakwood College, a historically black, primarily liberal arts four-year co- 
educational Seventh-day Adventist institution, founded in 1896, has as its 
fundamental purpose, quality Christian education. Its mission embodies access 
to educational opportunity, academic excellence, and spiritual development for 
its students who come from diverse geographical, cultural, educational, and 
socioeconomic backgrounds. In addition to its emphasis on the liberal arts, the 
college provides biblical, professional, pre-professional, vocational, and 
continuing education studies. Some of these studies emanate from a limited 
number of institutional cooperative programs. Its programs and activities are 
unequivocally Christian in character, designed to integrate faith and learning, 
encourage a vibrant spiritual experience, prepare individuals for service to God 
and humanity, and provide an atmosphere for appreciation for oneself and 
affirmation of cultural diversity. 

The Oakwood College mission is stated in six general goals. 

Spiritual 

Provide a spiritual environment and religious instruction that will enable the 
student to reflect fully the image of Jesus Christ through emphasis on the 
development of character and talent, the nobility of ambition, and the keenness 
of perception with sound judgment, so that the student is prepared to render 
unselfish service to God and man.

Admission Standards 



General Information 

Oakwood College welcomes applicants regardless of race, color, nation- 
ality, ethnicity, sex, or physical challenges. Admission is a privilege and not 
aright. The college, however, reserves the right to deny admission to any student 
who, in the judgment of the Office of Student Services or the Office of Enrollment 
Management, may not benefit from the total program of the college, or whose 
presence or conduct may be detrimental to the program. 

Inasmuch as Oakwood College is sponsored and financed primarily by the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church, the majority of its students are members of that 
church. However, no particular religious commitment is required for admission. 
Students who meet the academic and character requirements of the college and 
who express willingness to cooperate with college policies and to adjust to and 
be comfortable within its religious, social, and cultural atmosphere, may be 
admitted subject to available space. 

Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to a specific 
department or program.

tive Council upon the recommendation of the Admissions Committee or the 
faculty. The Director of Enrollment Management has been delegated to carry 
out these policies. The mission of Oakwood College is to "provide access to 
opportunity," therefore, Oakwood receives students from foreign countries as 
well as from all over the United States. Due to the wide variation of students 
seeking admission, the following requirements for admission are more flexible 
than in some other colleges: 

1 .*a) Official high school transcript verifying graduation with a cumulative 
grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.00 on a 4.00 grading scale or

information. This document must be retumed to the Financial Aid Office 
(FAO) before the student's award package can be determined. iVlail the 
Student Aid Report to us as soon as possible or bring the SAR to the 
FAO. 

The Student's Use Box, which is located on the back of Part I of the SAR, 
must be completed by the applicant. This box has a Statement of 
Registration Status, Statement of Educational Purpose/Certification, 
Statement on Refunds and Default, Anti-Drug Act Certification compo- 
nents, and a signature line. Students must complete every component 
and sign the document. 

Submit a signed copy of the base year Federal Income Tax Return to 
the FAO. Base year is the year that precedes the academic yea^ for 
which aid is being applied. For example, applicants for the 1994-95 
academic year would submit their 1 994 Federal Income Tax Return. If 
the student did not file a tax return, then he/she would complete the 
appropriate section of the Oakwood College Verification Worksheet and 
submit copies of their W-2's. 

Legal or biological parents of dependent students must submit a signed 
copy of their complete base year Federal Income Tax Return(s) to the 
FAO If the parent(s) did not and will not file a base year tax return, then 
they must complete the appropriate section of the OC Verification 
Worksheet and submit copies of their W-2's. 

The Oakwood College Verification Worksheet must be completed by 
dependent students and their parent(s). Independent students/spouses 
must complete the worksheet for independent students. Each section 
must be completed and signed by the designated family members a^d 
returned to the FAO. 

Students who have attended other colleges, proprietary, technical, and/ 
or community colleges must request a Financial Aid Transcript Request 
Form for this procedure. Even if you did not receive aid at the other 
institution, you are still required to request the transcript. 
Students who are twenty four years old must submit a copy of one of the 
following forms of identification: a valid driver's license, a birth certifi- 
cate, or a current and valid Oakwood College student I.D. that has the 
birth date. 

Eligible non-citizens applying forfinancial aid will have their Immigration 
and Naturalization Service (INS) status checked by the Federal Depart- 
ment of Education and INS and a verifying statement will be indicated on 
the SAR. If the SAR statement indicates that the student is properly 
registered with INS, it will not be necessary to submit a copy of the Alien 
Registration Card; othenwise, send a copy of both sides of the card. 
The student, spouse, or parent must submit official documents that 
substantiate the annual amounts of untaxed income for the base year. 
Untaxed income may include Social Security Benefits, AFDC/ADC, 
Pension Benefits, Workman's Compensation, or Parsonage Allowance.

If the documentation is not an official/regulatory form with appropriate 
signatures, it will not be accepted by the FAO. 

10. Students applying for a Federal Stafford Loan or the Parents Loan for 
Undergraduate Students (PLUS) must submit a signed loan application 
to the FAO. 

11. All required documents fertile completion should be postmarked by June 
23 to use federal dollars (grants and loans) for registration in the fall 
semester. 

12. After the award letter, the college work-study contract (if the applicant 
received it), and the entrance interview have been signed by the student, 
they must be returned to the office before the funds can be applied to the 
student's account. 



Financial Aid Policies 
Satisfactory Academic Progress 

The concept of Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) goes beyond good 
standing to mean evidence of positive movement toward the student's degree. 
Participating institutions in the Title IV programs are required to establish 
standards of SAP for students receiving assistance through the following pro- 
grams: Federal College Work-Study (CWS), Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supple- 
mental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal PLUS Loan, or Federal 
Stafford Loan. 

The SAP policy has two components, qualitative and quantitative. In the 
qualitative component, recipients of the federal student financial programs must 
maintain the indicated cumulative unadjusted GPA for the indicated years of 
enrollment. 

Payn.^nt of all federal and state resources will be based upon the student's 
compliance with the appropriate unadjusted cumulative GPA as indicated in the 
qualitative component of the SAP policy. Every recipient's GPA status will be 
reviewed each year during the financial aid file verification process. Students with 
ineligible GPA's forfeit all federal and state resources until the unadjusted 
cumulative GPA is at the appropriate level. Lost federal/state resources are not 
retroactive after the student regains eligibility in the subsequent semester(s). 

In the quantitative component students enrolled full-time must complete their 
undergraduate degree in five years or ten semesters. During this period, the 
student must successfully pass the number of hours indicated below with the 
unadjusted cumulative GPA as stated in the qualitative component.

Reinstatement 

Students who lose financial aid eligibility because of failure to maintain 
satisfactory progress toward a degree may reapply for financial aid after clearing 
the deficiency; no aid will be retroactively granted. 

Verification of Enrollment 

Students who require enrollment verification for student loan deferment 
purposes must bring the form, or a written request, to the Records Office. When 
a student is enrolled full-time, freshmen and senior verification will be for one 
year, juniors for two years, sophomores for three years. 

Transfer Students Eligibility for Aid 

Transfer students are eligible for federal aid during their first semester of 
attendance at the college, regardless of their GPA from transfer hours. Following 
the hours and courses completed at the institution. 

Repeated Course Work 

Repeated course work will not be considered in meeting the enrollment 
status requirements for receiving federal funds. For example, if a student 
registers for 1 2 hours and 4 hours are repeated courses, then the student would 
only receive PELL and SEOG grants for half-time enrollment. The student would 
be listed as taking 8 hours, since the 4 hour course is a repeat. 

Student Appeals Process to the Financial Aid Committee 

The appeals process can only be utilized for the issues pertaining to the 
Withdrawal and Coordination of Institutional Sources of Student Aid Policies. 
Students must submit their appeals request on the Appeals Form to the FAO. The 
student will be notified by the Academic Vice President of the result of the 
meeting. 

Available Funds 

Federal Pell Grant-a non-repayable, federal funded grant program for 
undergraduate students only. Pell Grant awards vary in amount each year and 
are based on financial need and hours of enrollment. 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)"a non 
repayable, federally funded and university based grant program. Awards are 
made to early applicants who demonstrate the most financial need. 

Alabama Student Assistance Program (ASAP)-State funded grants in 
varying amounts available to Alabama residents who demonstrate financial need. 

Federal Subsidized Stafford Loans-subsidized loans, which means the 
federal government will pay the interest on the loan while the student is in school 



25 



and during specified deferments. The student must demonstrate financial need 
to receive this loan. 

Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans-loans that students may borrow 
regardless of need but will have to pay all interest charges. 

Federal PLUS Loans-Parents of a dependent student may borrow a PLUS 
loan to pay for the student's education.

the same as for independent students. 

Who May Apply for Financial Aid 

Students must be enrolled at least half-time and a U.S. citizen or Permanent 
Resident. You must maintain satisfactory academic progress.

Student Life and Services 



Religious Life 

At Oakwood, religion is the main foundation. The College Church service, 
the Sabbath School, the Adventist Youth Society (A.Y.S.), the Ministerial Forum, 
the student literature evangelism program, the residence hall worship hours, and 
the many prayer bands afford the students excellent opportunities for the 
development of character, self-expression, leadership, and initiative. 



Convocations, the Arts and Lectures Series 

During the school year distinguished guest speakers address the student 
body at the weekly assemblies. In the fall and spring semesters, they also 
conduct weeks of religiouis emphasis. The Arts and Lectures Series brings to 
the campus each year several outstanding lecturers and artists. In addition to 
these, many other programs of significance are sponsored by the college. It is 
expected that all students will attend the weekly assemblies, the Arts and 
Lectures programs, and special convocations. 



Social Activities 

A wholesome program of social activities is planned by the Director of 
Student Activities in consultation with the United Student Movement. Social 
programs are sponsored during the year by clubs, classes, and organizations. 
The students experience social and cultural life by visiting faculty and staff 
members' homes. 



Extracurricular Activities Participation 

In order to ensure satisfactory scholarship, the extent to which students may 
participate in extracurricular activities is subject to regulation. In addition to any 
other regulations, the minimum cumulative GPA must be 2.00 for membership 
and 2.50 to hold office. 

The recreational activities of the college are designed to serve the wide 
variety of leisure-time interests of the students. 



Intramural Sports 

The college sponsors a program of intramural sports in connection with the 
physical education activities. 



27 



Health Service 

The College Health Service is designed to meet the medical needs of 
students. Nurses are on active duty during the day and evening and on call for 
emergencies at night. The College Physician holds regular clinic hours in the 
Health Office four days a week and is available on call. In case of serious illness 
or accident, excellent complete hospital care is readily available. 



Student Association 

The United Student Movement (USM) of Oakwood College is the major 
student organization of the college. This organization seeks to promote a more 
perfect relationship among all sectors of the college community; to enhance the 
religious, academic, cultural, and social programs of the college; and to emphati- 
cally support the aims and objectives of Oakwood College. Each matriculated, 
regular student of Oakwood College is a member of the United Student Move- 
ment. The United Student Movement finances its own program through the 
payment of individual membership dues. With the help and approval of faculty 
sponsors, the United Student Movement (USM) carries out such programs along 
with the Department of Student Activities.

participate in club activities and a GPA of 2.50 to liold office. * No Greek social 
clubs are allowed to organize or function on campus. 



Governing Standards 

It is the purpose of the college to develop strong men and women with high 
standards of scholarship and the self-discipline necessary for Christian leader- 
ship. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded upon the 
principle that character building is the highest object of education and that a good 
name, standing for integrity, honor, and godliness, is the objective of the student 
for himself and of the college for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established to provide 
a Christian environment in which students may prepare themselves for service at 
home and in other lands. In order to maintain this environment certain general 
rules of conduct apply. 

All students are expected to wear and publicly display their I .D. badges while 
on campus except when attending Sabbath worship services. 



Student Handbook 

In every community there are laws. It is the responsibility of every student 
to secure from the Office of Student Services and to read the rules and regulations 
governing student life at Oakwood College, preferably before registration. Famil- 
iarity with and acceptance of the requirements set forth in this book will make life 
at Oakwood College more interesting and certainly more enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his 
scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct and his attitude toward 
the community in which he lives. As a citizen of the college community the student 
must realize that he has been admitted to a privileged group and that he has no 
right to work against that group. Any student who violates the rules of the college 
or whose conduct evidences lack of respect for the standards maintained by the 
college may be asked to withdraw. 



Student Citizenship 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of entering any 
department of the college is subject to its supervision and jurisdiction from the 
time of arrival in Huntsville until his connection is terminated by graduation or by 
any officially approved withdrawal. The record of each student is reviewed 
periodically, and his continuation in college is based upon his attitudes and 
general conduct, as well as his scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the governing policies of the college are infractions which are 
considered cause for suspension and may be cause for dismissal or serious 
disciplinary action for the first offense. 



29 



Since no student who makes a habit of indulging in any of these practices 
would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College the first infraction may result 
in dismissal from school. 

A student whose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory or whose influence is 
detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. 

Any student dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the campus 
and may be subjected to charges of trespassing should he return without 
permission from the Administration. 

Leave of Absence 

Permission for an overnight or week-end leave of absence from the campus 
may be obtained from the appropriate residence dean. Approval must also be 
obtained from the work supervisor and, when classes are missed, from the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. For travelling, written permission from the parent 
or guardian must be on file for every student who is not of legal age (1 9 years of 
age in Alabama). 



Attendance at Religious Services 

Oakwood College is emphatically a Christian college. Attendance at wor- 
ships, Friday evening vespers, and Sabbath services is expected of all students 
residing on campus. 



Assembly Absences 

All registered students are required to attend the weekly assemblies. Two 
unexcused absences each semester are allowed without penalty. Excuses for 
absences from assembly must be submitted in writing to the Vice President for 
Student Services before the very next assembly. Failure to do this will automati- 
cally result in an unexcused absence. The third and fourth unexcused absence 
within a semester will result in a $25.00 fine per absence. Five or more absences 
within a semester will result in a $50.00 fine per absence. 



Use of Vehicles 

Since the ownership and the use of an automobile frequently militate against 
success in college, students are not encouraged to bring automobiles with them 
to the college unless absolutely necessary. Freshmen are not permitted to bring 
automobiles to the college, or to the vicinity, or to operate automobiles owned by 
other individuals. 

All students, whether living in residence halls or in the community, who own 
or operate any type of motor vehicle (e.g. car, motorcycle, scooter), must register 
it with the Office of Security at the time of registration for the fall quarter, or within 
twenty-four hours of his arrival should he arrive after registration has been 



' 



30 



concluded or within twenty-four hours of its procurement within any semester of 
the school year. 

Owners must have a valid operator's license and must show proof of liability 
insurance (including medical coverage) at the time of registration and whenever 
requested by traffic enforcement personnel. 



Residence Halls 

Oakwood College is a residential college. All unmarried students are 
required to live in one of the College residence halls and board in the College 
cafeteria. The only exceptions are those who live with parents or other close 
relatives who reside in the community of Huntsville. 

When campus housing is overcrowded, students age 22 and over may apply 
to the Housing Committee for permission to live in the community. Under special 
circumstances, students under 22 may also apply to the Housing Committee for 
permission to live off-campus in an officially approved home. This privilege does 
not apply to freshman or sophomore students; nor does it apply to students who 
are on social, citizenship, or academic probation. 

Such applications will be acted on only at the beginning of a semester. 
Failure to secure official approval to reside in the community or to withdraw from 
a college residence hall when directed to do so will invalidate the registration of 
a student. Students who have received approval for off campus living may be 
called into the college residence halls at any time the administration deems 
necessary for reasons of discipline or under-utilization of available space in the 
residence halls. 

Each residence hall is under the direction of a Residence Dean who has 
general supervision of the well being of the students under their charge. 



Apartments 

The college owns thirty units of one-and two-bedroom apartments which are 
available for married students. These apartments rent for reasonable amounts. 
There are also approved apartments in the community, furnished and unfur- 
nished, in which married students may live. For information write the Assistant 
Vice President for Finance. 



Student Labor 

Employment Regulations 

Regulations require that all employees hired present original documents that 
establish both their identity and eligibility to work. All students wishing to work on 



31 



the Oakwood College campus will be required to present documents before they 
will be authorized to begin work. 

Employees must present either one item from list A or one item from each of 
lists B and C:

32 



The Counseling Center 

A comprehensive program of guidance and counseling services is made 
available to students. 

Services 

Services include testing (diagnostic assessment, national placement ex- 
aminations, CLEP), counseling (personal, career, pre-marital, marriage and 
family), and developmental guidance (career evaluation, human relations, lead- 
ership training, and family life education). 

Goals and Philosophy 

The Center's emphasis is on personal development. Its primary goal is to 
help students become more effective in handling and resolving problem situa- 
tions before they become critical by teaching them what to expect and how to 
behave adaptively under most circumstances. It is a preventive philosophy which 
is believed to be most suitable to the needs, beliefs, and practices of Seventh-day 
Adventists and other fundamentally conservative Christians. 

The goal for its consulting activities is to facilitate the continuing development 
and maintenance of an optimal collegiate environment for learning and individual 
growth. 

Confidentiality 

Personal information regarding specific individuals is held in strictest confi- 
dence and may not be released without the written consent of the persons 
involved. 

Cost 

Professional services to students are given without charge. There are, 
however, charges associated with the computer scoring and analysis of diagnos- 
tic tests and the administration of the national placement examinations and 
CLEP. 



Career Services and International Student Affairs 

The Office of Career Services and International Student Affairs (ISA) offers 
a comprehensive program that assists students and alumni of all academic areas 
in attaining their career objectives. 

The primary goal of the Office of Career Services is to provide career 
opportunities to our students and alumni through programs which will enhance 
their professional competencies and increase their marketability. The following 
services are offered: 



33 



1 . Employment counseling for all students and alumni. 

2. On-campus interviews for seniors, graduate students, and alumni with 
local, state, and national employers. 

3. Mini-workshops and individual counseling sessions on resume and 
cover letter writing, placement-center orientation, and job-search strat- 
egies. 

4. Job-listing services which provide current information about specific 
employment opportunities. 

5. Classroom visitations on employment trends, resume writing, job- 
hunting techniques, and career planning. 

6. Luncheon and dinner meetings for faculty and employer representa- 
tives to discuss curriculum and programs as they relate to the job 
market. 

7. Internships and Cooperative Education which incorporates work expe- 
rience into the degree program: theory and practice blended. 

8. Literature provided by on-campus recruiters including career opportu- 
nities, benefits, salaries, and annual reports. 

9. Video tapes, brochures, booklets on interviewing, and resume writing. 

10. Annual Career Programs — Career Fairs and Youth Motivation Task 
Force Conferences. 

1 1 . Alumni referral service for graduates seeking employment or change of 
employment. 

12. Screening for international students to be sure they have adequate 
documentation. 

13. Assistance to international students having problems adjusting to 
college in the USA.

Academic Policies 



Curriculum 



The curriculum at Oakwood College reflects very distinctly the educational 
philosophy, purposes, and needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. From 
its earliest history, Seventh-day Adventist education has been multipurpose-a 
combination of theory and practice. Strong emphasis has been given to providing 
students with a college program that would grant them job entry and provide 
opportunities for the development of a personal code of moral and social values 
for Christian living in contemporary society. It is for this reason that the curricular 
offerings at Oakwood College have a very pragmatic character. This is true in the 
humanities, social sciences, applied sciences, and natural sciences. Because 
of the needs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as society at large, 
Oakwood College has developed some disciplines that are almost exclusively 
professional. However, regardless of the amount of vocational emphasis, all 
baccalaureate and associate degree programs have been so organized that 
there is a common core of general education studies required of all students. 

The mission of the college strongly emphasizes health, the importance of 
service to the world, the integration of spiritual instruction and understanding as 
a part of intellectual growth, and the facilitation of cultural and personal 
affirmation. The general education core curriculum includes courses in the 
philosophy of Christian education, basic computer literacy, health and recrea- 
tion, the humanities, foreign languages, mathematics, natural sciences, religion 
and theology, and social sciences. Baccalaureate and associate degree pro- 
grams likewise are designed to harmonize with the key elements of the college's 
mission. 

The college has fourteen academic departments offering over forty majors 
and about thirty minors. The following degrees are available: Associate of Arts, 
Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Social 
Work, and Bachelor of Vocal Performance.

The Academic Year 

The academic or college year usually starts in late August and ends in July. 
It consists of two semesters, each of which covers a period of approximately 
fifteen weeks and a summer session of at least six weeks. Provision may be made 
for mini sessions during the summer and winter breaks. 



Schedule of Classes 

Each year the college publishes a schedule of classes which lists the courses 
offered, the time of meetings, the rooms, and the instructors. The college 
reserves the right to cancel any course offered for which there are less than six 
students, and to set limits on class size when necessary. 



Course Numbers and Symbols 

Courses of instruction are classified as remedial, lower division, and upper 
division. Remedial courses numbered 090 through 099 are courses which may 
be required of certain students. Lower division courses are numbered 100 
through 299; upper division courses are numbered 300 through 499. Students 
should take each level in turn to avoid scheduling problems. Code to course 
symbols are:

Credit 

The unit of credit is the semester hour. A semester hour is the amount of 
credit earned for the satisfactory completion of one hour a week lecture or 
recitation or at least two hours a week laboratory practice throughout one 
semester. 



37 



Hyphenated courses ( e.g. 101-102) indicate that the sequence of courses 
should be taken in order. Commas separating courses ( e.g. 1 01 , 1 02) indicate 
that the courses may be taken out of sequence. The symbol 3-3 indicates that 
the course carries three semester hours of credit each semester for two 
semesters, which, being hyphenated, should be taken in sequence. The symbol 
3,3 indicates that the course may be taken out of sequence. 



Study Load 

Class load is governed by classification and previous academic performance 
as follows: 



Classification 
Academic Probation 
All regular students 
Sophomores and Juniors 
Seniors 



Minimum Cum. GPA

ties: 



1. Immigration and Naturalization Service 

2. Selective Service

Classification of Students 



New students are classified upon acceptance by the Office of Enrollment 
Management. Returning students' classification for the year is determined by the 
amount of credit they have earned at the beginning of the college year. A student 
who may meet the hour requirement, but whose cumulative grade point average 
is below 2. 00, will be listed in the next lower class until the cumulative grade point 
average is raised to 2.00 or better. Student classes are organized early in the fall 
semester according to the following levels of academic achievement (remedial 
courses are not included).

Special Students 

Special students accepted to the college fall under the following catego- 
ries: 

1 . Post Baccalaureate-- refers to a student with a bachelor's degree who is 
enrolled for part-time or full-time work. 

2. Unclassified-applies to any student who meets admission standards 
(but who has no present plans to pursue a degree) or to a student whose 
classification cannot be determined at the time of admission. 

3. Non-Degree-refers to a non-traditional student who desires to take a 
course or courses for personal development. Credit hours are limited 
to three per semester. 

4. Transient Admission-applies to a student submitting evidence that he 
or she is in good and regular standing in an accredited college or 
university but who desires temporary admission to Oakwood College for 
one semester, the grades and credits of which will be transferred to his

5. Visiting Student- (Refer to the Cooperative Programs section in this 
bulletin for details). 



Class Standing 

Freshmen are limited to lower division courses except by permission of the 
head of the department in which the course is being taught. The lower division 
courses are open to freshmen and sophomores and should be completed before 
the student progresses to the junior and senior years. 

A student entering the third year of college work who lacks any of the 
prescribed courses of the lower division, which are preliminary to upper division 
work for a degree, must first register for such prescribed courses of the lower 
division and then complete the program from the upper division. 

Beginning freshmen on academic probation will not be allowed to advance 
to regular academic standing until all academic deficiencies have been removed 
and at least 12 hours of other college credit have been earned with a minimum 
GPA of 2.00. 

Freshmen will not be allowed to advance to sophomore status until they have 
passed the Freshman Composition sequence and have a GPA of at least 1 .70. 
Sophomores will not be permitted to advance to junior status, or take any upper 
division courses, until they have a GPA of at least 2.00. Juniors will not be 
advanced to senior status, or permitted to submit an approved final year schedule 
for graduation, until they have passed the English Proficiency Test or EN 250, 
and have a GPA of at least 2.00. 



Permanent Student Records 

The student's permanent academic record is the transcript. The transcript 
contains biographical, geographical, and academic information regarding courses 



39 



taken and grades earned. This information is taken from application for accep- 
tance forms, registration forms, teachers' grade sheets, drop/add forms, and 
teachers' change of grade forms. 



Retention and Disposal of Student Records 

The retention and disposal of student records is in accordance with the 
recommendations of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and 
Admissions Officers as published in the guide entitled, Retention of Records: A 
Guide for Retention and Disposal of Student Records. 



Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 

Oakwood College complies with the Family Education Rights and Privacy 
Act of 1974. A student's record is regarded as confidential and release of this 
information is regulated by the Act. Students have the right to inspect their 
records at any time. Parents of students termed "dependent" for income tax 
purposes are entitled to receive information relating to the students' educational 
records upon request. A copy of the Act is on file in the Records Office. 



Registration 

Registration includes advising, selection of courses, and payment of fees. 
Students are required to register on the designated registration dates as an- 
nounced in the bulletin. Information on registration is available at the registration 
site. 

Students are not officially registered for courses until their "registration 
forms" have been processed by the Records Office and all fees have been paid. 



Late Registration 

Students failing to register during the scheduled registration periods are 
assessed a late registration fee of $35 and $5 for each additional day to a 
maximum of $60. Class periods missed because of late registration are counted 
as absences from the class. Students registering late may be required by the 
advisor and the Vice President for Academic Affairs to reduce their class load. 
Late registrants are required to make up course work already missed. 



Withdrawal From College Courses 

If students want to add or drop a class or change a section after having 
completed registration for credit or audit, they should follow these procedures: 



40 



I.Drop. Before the deadline (one week after mid-semester): a) obtain form 
from the Record's Office, b) secure proper signatures, c) pay the appropriate fee, 
and d) return the form to the Records Office. Expect a W for the class if dropped 
between the last day for a 60% refund and the deadline. Forgetting or failure to 
drop officially through processing a form will result in final grade of FA. 

2. Add. By the last day of late registration, follow the same steps (a-d) as 
listed above — under "Drop". A charge of $10 is made for each change of 
schedule until the last day for any tuition refund, except when the change is made 
necessary by the cancellation of a scheduled class or the change of class time 
which renders it impossible for students to maintain their original schedule. 

3. To discontinue a course of study, students must complete a terminal leave 
form one week before final examinations begin, which may be secured from the 
Office of Student Services. 



Pre-Examination Week 

Pre-examination week is the week that precedes the semester's final 
examinations. During this week no off-campus field trips or extracurricular 
activities, requiring students' participation, may be scheduled without the 
permission of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 



Final Examinations 

Should the final examination schedule require a student to complete four 
examinations in one day, arrangements may be made with the department chair 
to complete one of the examinations at another time. Otherwise, all students must 
take the final examination in each course at the time listed in the official time 
schedule. Exceptions may be made only by the Vice President for Academic 
Affairs. 



English Proficiency Examination 

Each student is required to take a proficiency examination in English during 
the junior year. Upper division transfer students who have completed Freshman 
Composition are required to take the English Proficiency Examination during the 
first semester in which the examination is offered. This examination is adminis- 
tered as scheduled in the calendar, once during the fall and sphng semesters. 
Students who fail to pass the examination twice are required to enroll in and pass 
EN 250 English Fundamentals, in order to qualify for graduation. Students who 
receive at least a B in EN 304 are exempt from this examination. A fee of $20 is 
charged for this examination. See the Department of English and Communica- 
tions for details. 



41 



Exit Examination 

All seniors are required to pass a departmental exit examination in their major 
area of study prior to graduation. Exit examinations may be internal or external, 
i.e., written by the department or obtained from an external source such as the 
Graduate Record Examination. 



Life Experience Policy 

Life Experience credit is granted upon the evaluation of accomplishments 
and competencies not ordinarily considered part of the traditional classroom 
experience. The program is geared towards the mature adult who has had a 
minimum of ten years' experience in a given area. Credit, however, is not 
applicable towards the first five years, and not until the student has completed 
a minimum of 16 semester hours with a minimum GPA of 2.00 at Oakwood 
College. 

Any credit granted will be for the learning gained, and not just for experience 
itself. Therefore, it is the students' responsibility to prove to the satisfaction of 
the Academic Policies Committee that from their experience they have 
developed competencies that are equivalent to classroom learning. In order to 
qualify to sit for the challenge examinations, students should follow these 
procedures: 

1. Describe learning experiences believed to translate into academic 
credit. 

2. Suggest what courses are applicable. 

3. Review document with academic advisor. 

4. Submit documentary evidence that may be used to verify the experi- 
ences identified (this would include testimonials from former employers 
and/or supervisors). 

5. Pass challenge examinations in areas for which credit is expected. 

The following evaluation formula will be used: 

1 . For each year of full-time work approved for credit by examination-3 
hours 

2. Not more than 25 percent of the 128 hours required for graduation shall 
be earned through life experience. 

3. Not more than 25 percent of the requirements for the major may be met 
through life experience credit. 

The charge for life experience credit by examination is $35 per credit hour.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 

A student who presents satisfactory evidence of having competence or 
exposure in a certain area covered by a required course may meet an academic 
requirement by passing a CLEP test. The following policies apply to the program: 

1 . The recommended maximum number of CLEP credits a student may apply 
toward graduation is 32 semester hours. 

2. In each major the maximum number of CLEP subject examination credits 
a student may earn is determined by the major department. 

3. In the case of the general education requirements, the Academic Policies 
Committee will determine which courses can be taken by CLEP and how 
much credit a student may earn from the basic general education require- 
ments without overlapping in the subject area. 

4. The minimum scores listed below must be acquired before credit can be 
granted. 

5. Acceptable CLEP scores shall earn corresponding course credit, but no 
letter grade shall be assigned or quality points considered. 

6. Once CLEP credit is placed on the transcript, a student may not repeat the 
course for which credit was given by examination for a grade. 

7. Incoming students wishing to take the CLEP test before entering Oakwood 
College must have the approval of the Records Office before the test is 
taken. 

8. All CLEP scores previously obtained at another school are subject to review 
by the Records Office. 

9. A fee covering the cost of the examination and its administration will be 
charged each student desiring to take the CLEP examination at Oakwood 
College. 



The following table lists the CLEP subject and corresponding courses and 
minimum scores acceptable at Oakwood College:

(withdrew) 



Grade Point Average 

The Grade Point Average (GPA) for the semester is computed by totaling 
honor points earned in all courses attempted and dividing by the total hours 
attempted (GPA = HP/HA). Credits for which grades of F, FA, and I are received 
are included in calculating the grade point average. The symbols AU, NC, DG, W, 
and P/U are disregarded in computing the grade point average. 

The academic progress record allows for repeated courses without GPA 
penalty. However, the GPA used to determine the eligibility for financial aid 
includes all work attempted. 



44 



Pass/Unsatisfactory Procedures 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass/unsatisfactory basis a student must 
be a sophomore, junior, or senior, and must not be on academic probation. No 
more than 1 6 hours may be taken on this basis. The pass/unsatisfactory system 
applies to elective courses only. A pass is equivalent to a C although some 
graduate and professional schools treat the P as a D. 

Approval for the P/U option should be obtained at the Records Office before 
the close of late registration. Registration changes in the process are final as of 
the last day to drop without academic penalty. 



Deferred Grade 

A deferred grade is assigned when a department is unable to allow students 
to complete the work because of equipment failure, insufficient time, or research 
materials having arrived late. 



Incomplete Work 

When, at the end of a semester, students are behind in their classwork, the 
teacher does not automatically grant a grade of "I" for more time to do the 
requirements. If, however, because of interruptive illness or other unavoidable 
circumstances, students may request the privilege of receiving a grade of "I" to 
allow more time to fulfill class requirements. They must apply in time so that a 
final decision is made before the beginning of final examination week. The 
procedures to be followed are: 

1 . Obtain and fill out a "Request and Authorization for Incomplete" at the 
Office of Academic Affairs. 

2. Attach a physician's statement if the reason is medical. 

3. Obtain the appropriate signatures. 

4. Return the form to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, 
at least five working days before the beginning of final examinations. 

An "I" may be changed to a regular grade when the class work is completed 
within the approved deadline. Such a deadline might range from a few days to 
several weeks, but no longer than the sixth week of the next semester, even 
when the student is not registered the next semester. The "\" automatically 
converts to an F if not removed within the prescribed time. Should more time 
because of further illness or unavoidable circumstances be needed to remove the 
incomplete, the student may, before the deadline expires, request in writing an 
extension of time from the Academic Policies Committee. 



45 



Grade Reports 

Grade reports are issued to the student and , if requested by the student, to 
the parents or guardians at the end of each semester. 



Errors and Corrections 

Upon the receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it for 
correctness as to the courses, credits, and grades recorded. Requests for 
corrections must be initiated within one month. 



Dean's List 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.50, who carry a minimum 
of 1 5 semester hours with no grade below a B, and no incompletes, are eligible 
for membership on the Dean's List. 



Honor Roll 

Students who carry a minimum of 12 hours, and maintain a grade point 
average of 3.00 or above during a given semester with no grade below a C , shall 
be considered honor students for the semester. 



Honors Convocation 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scholastic achieve- 
ment, loyalty to college standards, and exemplary citizenship, the college 
conducts an annual Honors Convocation. To be eligible for participation the 
student must have a cumulative GPA of not less than 3.50 for a minimum of 24 
hours earned at Oakwood College or a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and a minimum 
of 33 hours earned at Oakwood College. 



Graduation with Distinction 

Students are graduated with honors under the following conditions: 
Honorable Mention Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 

Cum Laude Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 

Magna Cum Laude Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 
Summa Cum Laude Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.75 



46

Academic Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal 

All students whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.00 are placed on academic 
probation. This status requires all academic probationary students to take part 
in the academic improvement program conducted by the Center for Academic 
Advancement (CAA). Failure of all academic probation students to take part in 
this program may result in dismissal from the college. Students who fail to make 
acceptable academic progress in view of the established policies and procedures 
of the institution will be suspended. A first suspension because of poor academic 
performance will result in the student being ineligible for readmission or 
reacceptance consideration for a period of two semesters from the date of 
suspension. When suspended a second time, students become eligible for 
readmission or reacceptance after one calendar year from the suspension date, 
providing that during that time they have attended another accredited college for 
at least one semester, carrying a minimum of 12 semester hours with no grade 
lower than C. In both cases, to be so considered, the student must apply for 
readmission through the Records Office. 

Any student who, after four academic semesters or 64 semester hours, has 
not attained a cumulative GPA of 2.00 will be dismissed for a minimum of two 
semesters. During this time the student must attend another accredited college 
for each semester of dismissal carrying a minimum of 12 hours with no grade 
lower than C. Course requirements must include classes previously taken at 
Oakwood that received grades of D or F. Application for readmission must be filed 
with the Records Office. 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.00 is denied the opportunity and 
permission to represent the college in any official capacity or to hold office in any 
student organization, or to be employed in any academic administrative area 
involving records and confidentiality. Some social restrictions involving leave 
requests may also apply . 

The following is a list of requirements for students on academic probation: 

1 . Limit registration to class load of 13 hours per semester. 

2. Must be advised by the CAA academic advisors for class schedule 
approval during registration. 

3. Include in class load courses in which the student received a D or F. 

4. Must register for remedial courses when the following conditions exist: 
ACT English score is less than 1 6 or SAT English score is less than 330; 
students must register for EN 095 and EN 099. ACT mathematics score 
is less than 16 or SAT mathematics score is less than 400; students 
must register for MA 095. ACT composite is less than 17 or SAT 
composite is less than 710; students must take PY 095. 

5. Must successfully pass remedial courses with at least a C before 
registering for classes in English or mathematics. 

6. Must receive weekly tutorial assistance at the CAA. 

7. Must attend weekly advising sessions with the CAA academic advisor. 



47 



Students on academic probation should expect to take more tiian two years 
to complete the requirements for an associate degree and more than four years 
to graduate with a bachelor's degree. 



Monitoring Students Academic Progress (MSAP) 

The Committee on Monitoring Students Academic Progress (MSAP), which 
consists of a consortium of college administrators, departmental chairs, faculty, 
and staff, insures students' conformance and compliance to the academic 
policies of the institution. Qualitative and quantitative data of students such as 
GPA's, class repeats, class failures, remediation, withdrawals, incompletes, 
and maximum time frames for academic work completion, are all used to 
determine a student's chances of successfully completing the major course of 
study. 

At least twice a year, this committee meets to review the academic progress 
of students whose academic standing is in jeopardy. Recommendations are 
made to suspend, dismiss, retain, or warn based on the data presented. 

The committee considers a student's academic progress to be in a serious 
status when the first semester's current GPA is less thanl.OO, or after two 
semesters the cumulative GPA is less than 1 .50, or after four semesters or a 
total of 64 hours the cumulative GPA is less than 2.00. 



Remedial Courses 

Beginning freshmen entering Oakwood College on academic probation 
must pursue a prescribed course of remedial studies during their first year, which 
may include any of the following: EN 095, EN 099, MA 095, and PY 095. These 
remedial courses, which are in addition to the 128 hours needed for graduation, 
must each be passed with a minimum grade of C. Any course failed must be 
repeated the next semester until passed. 



Center for Academic Advancement 

The mission of the Center for Academic Advancement (CAA) is to assist 
students to gain the skills necessary to do college-level work. The program, in 
collaboration with the Departments of Psychology, Mathematics and Computer 
Science, and English and Communications, offers Scholarship Skills, Basic 
Mathematics, Basic English, and Developmental Reading to select groups of 
students who need to develop scholarship skills. In addition to attending regular 
lecture classes, students must attend a laboratory once a week in Developmental 
Reading, Basic Mathematics, and Scholarship Skills. The laboratory component 
provides opportunity for individualized instruction consistent with student needs 
and desires. The laboratory setting affords students the opportunity to assess 
their deficiencies, work to correct them, and receive instant feedback. Laboratory 
work is considered for a significant percentage of each student's final grade. 



48 



Upgraded tutorial services supplement the developmental laboratories through 
the cooperative efforts of specialists and the tutor supervisor. 



The Eva B. Dykes Library 

The library supports the educational program of Oakwood College by 
providing students and faculty with resources and information services for 
learning, teaching, and research. The library collection is maintained and 
developed with books, periodicals, multimedia, archival, microform, and CD- 
ROM materials. The book and bound periodical collections include more than 
110,000 volumes. 

Library media services provide technological academic support with multi- 
media, video, audiovisual, and computerized resources and equipment for 
instruction and research. Special collections include historical materials concern- 
ing Oakwood College and African American Seventh-day Adventists, museum 
archival exhibits and displays, Ellen G. White study materials, and P.W. Ridgeway 
artifacts. 

Reference services provide interlibrary loans and DIALOG bibliographic 
online searches for research. The library has an automated online public access 
computerized catalog for rapid retrieval of information materials. The building is 
modern with three floor levels planned to cover 44,000 square feet to accommo- 
date approximately 200,000 volumes and seating for 400 persons. The library is 
available for use 75 hours weekly. 



Department Curriculum Laboratories 

Individual departments of the college may have centers or laboratories for 
the practical use of their students. For instance, the Mathematics Department has 
a mathematics/computer science laboratory, located in the Science Complex, 
Building B, designed as a center for the reinforcement of biology, chemistry, and 
physics. The Department of Music has a music laboratory, located in the Center 
for Academic Advancement, designed to help prospective music students 
overcome deficiencies. The Departments of Psychology and Social Work share 
a computer laboratory located in Green Hall. Other departments have seminar 
rooms and places where students may use computers or get special assistance. 



Freshman Studies 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instructional, 
and supportive services to first-year students. Its purpose is to increase their 
potential for academic success and personal adjustment to the demands of 
college life. 



49 



Orientation 

The week preceding registration for the fall semester of each year is known 
as Freshman Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman status are 
expected to report as notified and, upon arrival, to participate in all of the 
scheduled activities of the week. These include orientation to the academic and 
residential requirements of the college and the resources that are available to 
assist all students in meeting them successfully, and developmental guidance 
and instruction regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes that are essential for 
academic and personal success. 



Diagnostic Assessment 

During Freshman Orientation Week, the American College Test (ACT) will be 
administered to new freshmen who have not already taken it or the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test (SAT). 

Results are used for placing students in appropriate courses of study, 
fulfilling Alabama state requirements for entrance into special programs, and 
assisting advisors and counselors in their work of helping students to plan their 
academic programs, evaluate their academic progress, and set realistic personal 
and career goals. Accumulated data will help the college to determine what 
areas of its programs and services need strengthening and/or modification in 
order to effectively fulfill its commitment to the success of its students. 



Academic Advisement and Program Planning 

Although their declared interests in specific disciplines will be acknowledged, 
first-ye-^r students will be encouraged to concentrate on general education 
requirements for the purpose of academic exploration and continuing self- 
discovery. Freshman advisors, by means of extended interviews and perfor- 
mance reviews throughout the year, will assist in the process of confirming or 
modifying the personal interests and aspirations of each student. 



Special Services 

Students with special academic and developmental needs will receive 
appropriate assistance from CAA, the school's learning resource center. Assis- 
tance will be in the form of individualized course loads, specialized instruction, 
tutoring, and counseling performed by a dedicated staff of professional counsel- 
ors and selected honor students. Referrals for more specialized services will be 
made as warranted. 



50 



Cooperative Programs 

Two types of cooperative programs are made available at Oakwood College: 
I) Visiting Students, and 2) Off-campus Employment. 

A visiting student arrangement exists with Alabama A & M University, Athens 
State College, John C. Calhoun State Community College, The University of 
Alabama in Huntsville, and Oakwood College. Underthis arrangement, a student 
at any of the participating institutions may request permission to attend a class at 
one of the other schools. Conditions governing the granting of permission include 
the following: 

1 . The student must be a full-time student. 

2. The student must have an overall C average. 

3. The course desired must be unavailable at the student's home institu- 
tion. 

4. The student's request must be approved by the advisor and other 
appropriate personnel. 

5. Permission of the institution teaching the course is dependent upon 
availability of space for the visitor after its own students are accommo- 
dated. 

Any student interested in participating in the Visiting Student Program should 
contact the Vice President for Academic Affairs for information and procedures. 

Off-campus employment is available at businesses or professional estab- 
lishments upon prior approval. Contact the Office of Career Services for 
information. 



Repeated Courses 

There is no limit to the number of times a course may be repeated. The better 
grade for the repeated course will be accepted for credit. 



Auditing Courses 

Persons who are interested in auditing courses should register during 
regular registration. No credit is given for a course audited and the tuition charged 
is one-half the regular charge for credit. A course started on the auditing basis 
cannot be changed to a credit basis after the first week of the course. 



Correspondence Courses 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with 
Home Study International, which is the Extension Division of the Associated 
Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 



51 



A maximum of 12 semester hours of correspondence work may apply 
toward a baccalaureate degree program and 8 semester hours toward an 
associate degree. All requests for correspondence work must be approved by the 
Records Office and/or the Academic Policies Committee. 

Ordinarily, a student will not be permitted to carry correspondence while in 
residence if the required course is obtainable at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension 
work. Where this is an absolute necessity, the official transcript for the work 
completed must be in the Records Office by December 31 for spring graduation. 

A correspondence course with a D grade or below is unacceptable. No 
correspondence credit will be entered on the student's record until a minimum of 
16 hours in residence with a cumulative average of at least C has been earned. 
Home Study Institute courses do not meet the Alabama State Certification 
requirements for education majors. 



Writing Emphasis Courses 

Two writing emphasis courses of at least two hours each are required of all 
upper division students. Each department will designate and supervise at least 
one required course for its majors which will emphasize essay type tests and/or 
written reports or a term paper. A (W) after a course title designates a writing 
course. 



Research and Independent Study Courses 

Certain departments offer courses entitled "Research and Independent 
Study" for 1 to 3 hours credit each to provide qualified students an opportunity to 
work on problems or topics of special interest, to engage in research projects, and 
to do scholarly study as advanced work. Following are fundamental requirements 
for enrolling in such a course: The student must I) be a junior or senior in 
residence with at least a B average or the permission of the instructor and the 
department chair, 2) make application at the time of pre-registration or registra- 
tion by conferring with the chair of the major department, 3) be a major in the 
department in which the course is offered, and 4) receive in writing the specific 
requirements and expectations of the course from the instructor. A Research and 
Independent Study course with a minimum of two hours credit may qualify as a 
"writing emphasis" course. 



Adventist Colleges Abroad 



Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) is a consortium of Seventh-day Adventist 
Colleges and Universities in North America under the auspices of the Board of 
HigherEducation, General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Silver Spring, 
Maryland.

The ACA con sortium provides opportunities to qualified undergraduate 
students for study in other countries such as Argentina, Austria, France, Kenya, 
and Spain, while completing the requirements of their programs at their home 
colleges. This allows students to be immersed in the culture and life of another 
country while becoming conversant in its language. Through such experiences 
students also may gain an appreciation of and perhaps an inspiration for mission 
or other multi-cultural service (see Records Office for details). 



Summer School 

Under the umbrella of the Graduate Extension Program with Andrews 
University, the college offers brief intensive courses and workshops. Under- 
graduate courses in the teacher certification program are also offered during the 
summer. 



Transient Letters 

Students desiring to register at another college or university with the intent 
of returning must obtain a transient letter from the Records Office, which 
recommends the student for temporary admission to the other school without the 
students' having to go through normal admission requirements. Transient letters, 
however, are not granted for attendance at colleges or universities within a fifty- 
mile radius of Huntsville during the fall or spring semesters. 

Transient credit with grades below C- is unacceptable. Acceptable credit is 
recorded as transfer credit. Students from other schools desiring transient 
admission to Oakwood must provide an official letter of support from the home 
institution. 



Transcripts 

The Records Office releases official transcripts of a student's work at the 
college upon the student's written request. Telephone requests cannot be 
honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript to use, but official transcripts 
must be sent directly to other colleges, organizations, and other approved 
sources. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning the 
record of any student who has unpaid accounts or other charges, or who is in 
delinquent or default status in payment of student loans. 

Two weeks should be allowed forthe processing and mailing of the transcript 
after the request has been received. Official transcripts from other institutions 
which have been presented to Oakwood for admission and evaluation of credit 
become the property of Oakwood and are not reissued or copied for release. Each 
student is entitled to one official transcript without charge. A fee of $2.00 is 



53 



charged for each additional official transcript and $1 .00 for an unofficial transcript 
for unenrolled students. 



Class Absences 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory appoint- 
ments. Absences are counted from the first official day of classes. If for any reason 
the total hours of absence are double the number of credit hours of the course per 
semester, credit may, at the discretion of the instructor, be forfeited and a grade 
of FA be recorded. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student from 
required class work. The student, however, must make arrangements with the 
teacher for every anticipated school trip and other authorized leaves at least 72 
hours before the beginning of such anticipated schedules. All make-up work, 
involving examinations and other class requirements, must be made up within 
seven days after the absence occurs. 

It is the responsibility of students to keep a record of their absences, to keep 
themselves informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examina- 
tions at the time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all assignments when 
they are due. 



Student Missionary Program 

Each year, several Oakwood students go to foreign lands to serve as 
missionaries. Their responsibilities range from religious leadership, teaching, 
and industrial/vocational work. For details, contact the Department of Campus 
Ministries, Oakwood College. 

Following are the academic requirements for student missionaries: 

1 . Applicants must have attained at least sophomore standing (minimum 
30 semester hours) with a cumulative grade point average of C or above, 
and no grade below C in all English composition and grammar courses. 

2. Applicants must have a B average or above in the subject area that they 
are expected to teach as student missionaries. 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student mission- 
ary, the student shall receive three hours of elective credit on a pass/ 
fail basis in the area of Student Foreign Service. Quality of service is 
determined by a written evaluation from the immediate supervisor or 
appropriate official over the student missionary. Students may opt for an 
additional three hours should they secure prior approval from the 
instructional department and the Academic Policies Committee estab- 
lishing that more specialized mission services will be experienced such 
as, but not limited to, teaching certain academic disciplines. 

Student missionaries in active service are considered full-time students.

Academic Honesty 

Oakwood College is dedicated to scholastic integrity. Consequently, stu- 
dents of the college are required to maintain high Christian standards of honesty. 
If students are found or suspected of engaging in any of the following types of 
academic misconuct, the procedures set forth in this policy will be implemented. 

Types of Academic Dishonesty: 

1 . Dishonesty in testing (e.g., copying from another student's paper, using 
unauthorized materials, or collaborating with any other person without 
authority from the instructor during an examination; stealing test mate- 
rials; obtaining test information prior, during, or after an administered 
examination; or any other form of test dishonesty). 

2. Plagiarism-defined as unacknowledged use of another's work (e.g., 
submitting any written, oral, aesthetic, computer, or laboratory work 
prepared totally or in part by another person; such work need not be 
copyrighted). 

3. Any other practice deemed by the college as academic misconduct not 
listed above. 

Procedures for Handling Academic Dishonesty: 

If a teacher finds irrefutable evidence of academic dishonesty, the teacher 
should immediately speak with the student and issue zero credit for the particular 
examination, assignment, or project. 

If academic misconduct is suspected by a teacher, that teacher must follow 
certain steps. 

1. The teacher must first speak with the student about the question of 
dishonesty. If the student acknowledges engaging in academic miscon- 
duct, the student will be given no credit for the particular examination, 
assignment, or project. 

2. If the situation cannot be resolved between the teacher and student, then 
it must be brought to the attention of the teacher's department chair. 

3. If the department chair is unable to resolve the matter, the Vice President 
for Academic Affairs must then be consulted, and may refer the issue to 
the Academic Appeals Committee. 

4. Subsequent incidents of academic dishonesty make a student eligible 
for dismissal from the college. Students are, however, given the option 
of appealing this decision to the Academic Appeals Committee. 

5. Each established incident of academic misconduct shall be departmen- 
tally documented and submitted to both the student, the student's major 
department chair, the Vice President of Academic Affairs, and the Vice 
President of Student Services. 



55 



Academic Grievance 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional matters 
such as perceived unfairness, grading methodology, cheating, or some other 
misunderstanding within or without the classroom is encouraged to confer first 
with the teacher of the class and, if deemed necessary, with the teacher's 
department chair. If the matter is not resolved satisfactorily at the first two levels, 
the student should contact the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

The Vice President for Academic Affairs will review the matter to a) make a 
final determination of the matter, or b) refer the matter to the Academic Appeals 
Committee for further review and recommendation. In either case, the final 
decision is the responsibility of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. 

The Academic Appeals Committee receives referrals directly from the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. Cases are referred to this committee if the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs determines more information is needed to make 
an equitable decision. The process is as follows: a) the Vice President for 
Academic Affairs notifies the chair of the Appeals Committee of the student's 
concern, b) the aggrieved student submits a written report of the complaint to the 
chair of the Appeals Committee, and c) a recommendation is made to the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs. 

Students or faculty members have the option to appear in person before the 
Appeals Committee, bringing documentation to support their views; however, it 
is not required that they appear in person. It should be understood that the 
purpose of the appeals process is to peaceably resolve issues which have not 
been resolved through other means. Therefore, the approach to problem 
resolution in the appeals process is through consensus, so far as is possible. 

The membership of the Academic Appeals Committee consists of six 
individuals, that include: the USM Academic Vice President (chair), two elected 
student representatives, two full-time teaching faculty, and one full-time staff 
member, "^he Vice President for Academic Affairs , or designee, may choose to 
sit with the Appeals Committee for purposes of hearing the discussion or for 
clarification of issues, but not for voting purposes. 



Bulletin Selection 

Students may meet degree requirements under the bulletin of initial registra- 
tion or any bulletin in effect during the time of continuous residence at Oakwood. 
Selecting the senior year bulletin must be done prior to the final semester of the 
graduating year. Students who discontinue enrollment must meet the following 
bulletin requirements: 

1 . If unenrolled for one calendar year or less, students may return under 
any bulletin in effect during their previous continuous residence. Trans- 
fer credit will be accepted provided that a transient letter request has 



56 



received prior approval from the Records Office. 

Students unenrolled for more than one calendar year must meet the 

requirements of the current bulletin. 

Seniors with 1 2 hours or less remaining at the time of spring graduation 

have a maximum of two calendar years to complete their requirements 

and remain under the bulletin they selected during their senior year. 

All transfer students must fulfill the requirements of the current bulletin. 



Double Major 

Students may enroll for a double major provided they meet all of the require- 
ments for both majors. Pursuing a double major will require more than 1 28 hours 
and take longer than four years to complete. 



Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees 

General 

1 . A candidate for a degree must have a satisfactory academic record and 
be of good moral character. In addition, the candidate must possess 
personal attributes which will reflect well upon Oakwood College. The 
college reserves the sole and final right to determine whether the 
candidate possesses such personal attributes. 

2. The responsibility for meeting requirements for graduation rests prima- 
rily upon the students. They must acquaint themselves with the 
requirements as outlined in the College Bulletin, and, with the aid of their 
advisor, plan their work so as to fulfill each one of the requirements at 
the regular level of academic progress.

The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies 

The General Education Requirements are the same as for other B.A. 
degrees. Instead of a major, three disciplines of 24 hours each are required. Each 
discipline must include 1 1 upper division hours and fulfill the requirements for a 
minor if offered and be approved by separate advisors. No more than two 
disciplines can be from the same department. 



Second Bachelor's degree 

Two different bachelor degrees may be conferred at the same time if the 
candidate has met the requirements of both degrees, and has completed a total 
of 160 semester hours of credit. The college does not grant two degrees of the 
same kind to any one person at the same time, such as two B.A.'s or two B.S.'s. 
Students may, however, earn a second degree after one degree has been 
conferred by completing an additional 32 semester credits, meeting the basic 
degree requirements of both degrees, and the requirements of a second major.

Adult and Continuing Education 

Oakwood College developed the Leadership Education for the Adult Profes- 
sional (LEAP) Degree Completion Program to meet the needs of working adults 
who are twenty-five or older and have two or more years of college credits. 
Typically, these individuals are employed full-time and are unable to meet their 
educational needs through the traditional method. 

This program offers an innovative format that allows the student to earn a 
bachelor's degree by attending class one night per week on a year-round basis 
within a manageable amount of time. Classes begin at different intervals during 
the year, thus allowing students the flexibility of planning their own course 
completion. Students meeting all prerequisites can complete the program in 
approximately 18 months.

Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of Biological Sciences to develop in its 
students a thorough understanding of and appreciation for principles underlying 
basic functions of the living organism. The curriculum is designed for those who 
plan to enter medical or dental schools, allied health schools, or those planning 
to teach in elementary or secondary schools. Opportunity is also available for 
laboratory research experience for those planning to enter biomedical research 
careers. 



High School Preparation 

Courses in biology, chemistry, general science, and mathematics are all 
highly desirable and it is strongly recommended that all high school students 
wishing to pursue a career in the sciences take these classes. 



Application for Admission 

To be admitted as a major in the Department of Biological Sciences, students 
must have completed at least 32 hours of course work, including EN 102 
Freshman Composition and Bl 122 General Biology, and have an overall 
minimum GPA of 2.25. Application forms must be obtained from, and returned 
to, the department. 

Exit Examinations 

All senior biology majors are required to take one of the following exit 
examinations: the ETS Biology Test which must be passed within two standard 



64 



deviations of the national norm or the GRE advanced biology test which must 
be passed with a score of at least 850. 



Career Opportunities 

Biology, the study of living things, is a science that has many specialties and 
existing opportunities for rewarding careers. Modern biology is pursuing the 
quest for a full understanding, at the molecular level, of the basic mechanisms 
underlying life processes. Modern biology is also concerned with current social 
issues related to human health, behavior, over-population, and those that impact 
on the earth's natural, life sustaining environment. Many more trained biologists 
will be needed, in addition to health professionals, to find an effective answer to 
the AIDS dilemma. 

Graduates from this department may also have careers in agriculture, allied 
health, dentistry, medicine, and teaching.

Career Opportunities 

"Ask an old chemist what he would like most, and his answer would be a 
young chemist." This statement describes the atmosphere of enthusiasm about 
chemistry and chemical research that permeates the department. Indeed, 
chemistry at Oakwood is an exciting confrontation of the student with the theories, 
the methods, and the armamentarium of modern chemistry and biochemistry. 
Many of the graduates of this department have earned doctoral degrees in 
science, medicine, and dentistry from some of the most prestigious universities 
in this country and in Europe. Others have achieved successful careers in the 
laboratories of government and industry as chemists, biochemists, and engi- 
neers. Oakwood has been listed as one of the 23 historically black colleges that 
are most productive of black scientific talent. 

Currently, the demand for allied health professionals greatly exceeds the 
supply of available personnel. As a result, salaries are highly competitive and 
the graduate usually has a variety of employment options available.

school teaching and, eventually, for graduate study and employment in admin- 
istration, teaching, supervision, and support services. The curriculum allows 
students to apply for Alabama Class B Certification: grades 1-6; certification in 
other states; and SDA Basic Teaching Certification: grades 1-9. 



Secondary Education 

The following teaching areas are offered in secondary education: biology, 
business, chemistry, English, home economics, language arts, mathematics, 
religion, and social science. Students pursuing biology, chemistry, English, and 
mathematics may choose a single teaching field or the option of two teaching 
fields (see education advisor). Religious education students must choose a 
second teaching field (see education advisor). 



96 



These programs allow students, upon graduation, to apply for the Alabama 
Class B Certificate: grades 7-1 2 (except religion), and the SDA Basic Certificate: 
grades 7-12. 



N-12 Programs 

The following teaching areas are offered in early childhood through the 
secondary teaching level: music education, instrumental (N-12), music educa- 
tion, vocal-choral (N-12), and physical education (N-12). 

These curricula allow students, upon graduation, to apply for Alabama Class 
B Certification: N-12 and SDA Basic Teaching Certification: K-12. 



Master of Arts in Teaching 

The Master of Arts in Teaching is offered during the summer by Andrews 
University on the Oakwood College campus. Faculty from both institutions 
provide the teaching staff. The curriculum is jointly planned to meet the needs of 
Oakwood College graduates as well as other interested practitioners. 

The NCATE-approved degree is conferred by Andrews University and will 
satisfy the advanced study requirements for the SDA Standard and Professional 
Teaching Certificates. 

Students studying for the Master of Arts in Teaching degree in Elementary 
Education may receive all of their instruction on the Oakwood College campus. 
Secondary teachers may receive up to 12 hours of instruction at Oakwood and 
the remainder at Andrews University. Application procedures and policies are the 
same as those at the Berrien Springs campus. 



Application for Admission 

Criteria for admission into teacher education include the following: 

1 . A formal written application for admission to teacher education submitted 
after completion of at least 60 semester hours, including 48 hours of general 
studies. 

2. A cumulative GPA of 2.50 for all college work attempted to meet the 
approved program. The overall grade point average must be calculated 
using the following components: 

a) General Studies — All work used to meet the general studies 
requirements in the approved program. 

b) Professional Studies — All work attempted in professional studies 
of the approved program and all transferred work in the profes- 
sional studies used to meet program requirements. 

c) Teaching Field(s) — All work attempted in the teaching field(s) 
used to meet program requirements. 



97 



d) If additional course work is required to fulfill the GPA requirement 
for admission, only course work in the humanities, social sciences, 
sciences, mathematics, or the teaching field(s) may be used. 

e) No grade below C will be accepted in the following courses: EN 
101,102, MA 100, 101, 108, PE 211, all religion courses, all

employment supervisor, residence hall dean, and an interview by the 
education faculty. 



Additional Guidelines 

Teacher Education students who wish to receive credit for study at institu- 
tions outside the United States must obtain an evaluation of the credits from World 
Education Services, Inc., New York, or from a state, federal, or private foreign 
credential evaluation service recognized by the Teacher Certification Office of the 
Alabama Department of Education. 

All correspondence work in general studies or work taken off campus must 
have prior approval. 

Students desiring a career in secondary education should consult the 
secondary education program advisor no later than the first semester of the 
sophomore year in order to plan an appropriate course of study. 

The exact course requirements may differ from student to student depending 
on the precise time the student enrolls in teacher education. This curriculum is 
based on denominational, state, and institutional policies and is thereby subject 
to change. 

The Teacher Education Council reserves the right to admit persons to 
teacher education who, in the judgment of the council, are most likely to profit from 
the teacher education program of study offered at Oakwood College. A conviction 
for a felony will disqualify a student from being certified as a teacher in the state 
of Alabama. 

If necessary, a student may repeat required entrance examinations in an 
effort to meet admission standards. A limited number of specified courses in 
education may be earned prior to admission to the Teacher Education Program. 



Application to Internship 

In the junior year, education students must apply to the Teacher Education 
Council for admission to student teaching for the ensuing senior year. In addition 
to letters of recommendation, students are required to maintain a minimum GPA

Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of English and Communications to 
provide essential service to every student. The English program provides 
strategies whereby students can learn to read with speed and comprehension, 
to speak and write clearly, to listen and recall correctly, and to perceive that 
literature is important because it is a source of vital insights into the problems and 
achievements of men--ancient or modern. Beyond and above these objectives, 
the department deals with languages from a Christian perspective by emphasiz- 
ing such qualities of language as purity, kindness, and honesty. 

The area of communications provides an opportunity for students of oral 
communications and mass communications to learn the theory and practice of 
the art of communications. Students are prepared for careers in all areas of 
media including print and audio/video production. 

The objectives of the art program are to provide an environment for 
aesthetic and technical growth, to cultivate an appreciation of the many forms of 
visual experience, to provide opportunities for the joy of self-expression in the 
visual arts, and to prepare artists for employment in a wide variety of professions. 

The program in foreign languages facilitates the B.A. degree and provides 
a profitable elective for students alert to society's growing multiculturalism and 
the cosmopolitan nature of our wortd. In conjunction with Adventist Colleges 
Abroad, the foreign language program offers a degree in French or Spanish.

Introduction 

The Department of History comprises areas of study in various fields of 
history, political science, and geography. Courses are designed to meet the 
questions of the past, and problems of the contemporary world in areas of 
American, Latin American, European, African, and Christian Church history. 
Political Science courses are built around the various structures and concepts 
of politics, government, diplomacy, and international relations. Three survey 
courses are offered in cultural, physical, and regional geography. 



Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of History to prepare students to use the 
discipline of history as an analytical tool to understand the dynamics of today's 
ever-changing and complex society. Students are expected to synthesize a 
working knowledge base from their work in courses representing the major 
subject areas of study and from documents pertinent to their study and writing 
in these areas. From this knowledge base, students will distinguish between 
and show appreciation for the diversity of world cultural institutions. In addition, 
students will exemplify, through their life-styles, the spiritual and moral values 
gleaned from these courses.

Purpose 

It is the purpose of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science 
to provide students with experiences which will assist them in defining their life 
and career objectives. Course offerings, advisors, and day-to-day contact with 
faculty and other students contribute to this goal. The courses provide the 
necessary background which will allow students to pursue graduate work, teach 
secondary school, obtain employment in government and industry, and acquire 
mathematical tools for use in the physical, social, life, and management sciences. 
The department also provides for students' academic development, an intellec- 
tual environment, personal development, interpersonal skills, and self-under- 
standing. These goals reflect the department's philosophy, that the fostering of 
the intellectual growth and development of the students is our primary reason for 
being. 



High School Preparation 

Although many colleges provide remedial work in mathematics, potential 
mathematics majors will be at an advantage if they acquire skills in algebra, 
geometry, and trigonometry while in high school. These subjects are needed for 
traditional college calculus. 



Application for Admission 

To be admitted as a major in the Department of Mathematics and Computer 
Science, students must have completed as least 32 hours of course work 
including EN 1 02 Freshman Composition. Students must also have completed 



148 



MA 171-172 Calculus, if a mathematics major, or CM 210, 220, if a computer 
science major. Applicants must have an overall minimum GPA of 2.00 and a 
minimum GPA of 2.25 in mathematics or computer science. Application forms 
must be obtained from, and returned to, the department. 

Exit Examination 

All majors in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science are 
required to pass an exit examination with at least a grade of C. This examination 
will be administered during the fall semester of their senior year. 



Career Opportunities 

Careers are available in mathematics in teaching: the public school system, 
the junior or community college system, and the college or university system, and 
in industry : computer mathematician, operation researcher, statistician, classi- 
cal engineering assistant, actuarial training, surveying assistant, research cleri- 
cal accounting, and cartography. 

A degree in computer science will provide opportunities in teaching, industry, 
and government. Several firms employ persons to design and write programs for 
computer users. Computer manufacturers are major employers of well trained 
computer scientists. A graduate degree in computer science provides more 
opportunities in teaching and research. 



Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics/Engineering 

This is a cooperative dual degree program in which the student spends 
approximately three years at Oakwood College and approximately two years at 
the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). Following the successful comple- 
tion of all requirements, the student will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of 
Science in Applied Mathematics from Oakwood College. The student will also 
receive the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering from UAH in one of the
